A memory for life
Hippocampus is a varied and pleasant housing area in the Kämnärsrätten district of northeast Lund. The housing area opened in 2021 as part of a newly developed campus environment with a focus on well-being and sustainability. There are high environmental requirements including sound material choices, green spaces, sedum roofs, low energy consumption, and good conditions for using a bicycle. Along Hippocampus and the nearby quarters runs Campuskilen, a park-like thoroughfare that offers, among other things, an outdoor gym, boule court, table tennis table, and places to barbecue and chill out.
Hippocampus consists of four buildings with 4–10 stories – one angular terrace building, one low-rise terrace building, and two tower blocks – which together frame a green space. The buildings give a light impression with light sand-colored facades and elements of turquoise and brown tones. Here, there are studio apartments and apartments with friends in mind for 2–3 students, all designed for the best conceivable student life and offering features such as induction ovens and fast broadband. Four-room-plus-kitchen apartments have a dishwasher.
Hippocampus is named after an area in the limbic system of the brain that is important for our ability to remember as well as our sense of direction, which is apt as the area offers AF Bostäder’s highest vantage point with views over Lund, Skåne and the Öresund Strait.
At Hippocampus, you live close to Lund University’s Faculty of Engineering (LTH) and School of Economics and Management. Student nation life, the university’s departments, and Lund city center are within easy cycling distance. Amenities in the local area include supermarkets, pharmacy, parcel delivery office, gym, swimming pool, green spaces, and jogging track.
The rent includes electricity, hot water, detergent, storage, a designated place in the cycle rack, and an internet bandwidth of 1 GB. There is no TV outlet.
At AF Bostäder, you always live in a smoking-free environment. Smoking is prohibited both in the accommodation and shared spaces such as stairwells and laundry rooms.
